Coming up in December airing live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas are the American Country Awards. These are the awards that fans determine. And the deadline to vote is Friday, November 11 for all categories, except for Artist of the Year, which closes Friday, December 2. This is the only country music awards show that gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite artists not only in traditional categories, but also in previously unrecognized areas like touring.

The show, a live music, two-hour spectacular, is slated for Monday, December 5 at 7p.m. central airing on FOX, and is hosted by Trace Adkins and Kristin Chenoweth. Up for "Single of the Year" are Billy Currington, "Let Me Down Easy"; Tim McGraw, "Felt Good on My Lips"; Thompson Square, "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not?"; Chris Young, "Voices"; and Zac Brown Band with Alan Jackson, "As She's Walking Away"(my pick in that category). If you want to vote, go to theacas.com. Now, check out that terrific song by the Zac Brown Band and the man, Alan Jackson.
